I'm in the same boat. I got set up on imgur too, and it seems to do the trick, but going back to edit all my lists is a pretty daunting task. I may never get around to doing it.

So this is kind of off topic, I'll be limiting my pumpkin/fall beer this year. So does anyone have any good recommendations for any good fall coffee blends? I would like to try something different to go along with my horror movie watching.

I enjoy the Coffemate pumpkin spice creamer. It makes a delicious coffee.

I like some pumpkin spice stuff, but I don't know if the creamer sounds all that good.

Thanks, I'll check it out.

I'm trying to keep up with the changes this year. Bad enough with Photobucket charging for 3rd party hosting, I believe physical Fangoria is back(?), our loss of horror icons, and Horror Block (Nerd Block, Fan Block, etc.) filed bankruptcy. I actually kinda wanted to give them a try since they included Rue Morgue.

I hadn't heard about the bankruptcy, damn! I was going to resubscribe. I went with Horror Block for a couple of years, for me it was worth it for Rue Morgue alone, as it's $10 an issue here, so for $5 bucks more it was a good deal. And if there was no issue of Rue Morgue they would substitute an issue of Fangoria. Some of the extras were pretty neat and it always assured I had something to give the nieces and nephews when I'd see them.

Crap. So that's why my Comic Block hasn't been coming?

One year, my goal will be to watch all of the movies on your banner for the challenge.

Re: 100 Movies. 31 Days. The 13th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/

Boy, it's been a while. I'm back for lucky thirteen, but the true challenge seems to be finding ninety minutes to watch a horror movie (let alone any movie) these days. Even though I hardly have time to watch movies, I still find myself going to bargain stores like Dollar General and picking up cheap horror DVD sets around this time of year. Just the other month, I found a couple of "Big Box of Horror" sets from Echo Bridge for $3.74 at Wal-Mart and decided to roll the dice. I don't know how many duplicate copies of old horror movies that have entered the public domain I own, but I'm pretty sure Echo Bridge is responsible for all of them.

I got one of those sets at Wal-Mart too. One of the movies on there was Vincent Price's Last Man On Earth. Looking forward to finishing my Puppet Master set, and working on my Universal Legacy Collections too.

Re: 100 Movies. 31 Days. The 13th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/

I was very sad that Horror Block died. For those who had active subscriptions, check to see if you were charged in July because almost no one received boxes or refunds. Also, Rue Morgue did have some type of Horror Block special if you want to subscribe, although I don't recall the exact details. I looked forward to that magazine every month, so I decided to show my support and subscribed.

Fangoria is back in physical form? I had no idea. I might consider a subscription to that as well.

I have 3 of the Rue Morgue special issues. A Graphic History of Horror Comics, Cryptic Collectibles and Horror Movie Heroes. The specials are the best things to have ever came with the Horror Block.

I was using Horror Block to introduce my kids to different characters without freaking them out entirely so we were all really disappointed. I ended up having to complain to my credit card company and get a refund that way for July.

I'm trying out Fright Crate this month for the first time, but I don't think it comes with a magazine.

Let us know what you think of it. I really enjoyed my monthly box of horror surprises. I'm considering trying another one. I know Loot Crate is supposed to be the giant in the monthly subscription box sector, but I don't think they have a strictly horror themed one.

I'm still bummed about Horror Block. I have about 5 unopened DVDS from them that i specifically saved for October and was hoping to continue that tradition. Oh well.

It's not back in any form. Dusting off old back issues is sadly your only option. They've been completely ignoring refund requests for both it and Gorezone for months now. Even if they did miraculously pull it off somehow, well, all the talented staff that made the magazine what it is were either fired or jumped ship, so what's the point really? Their loss and Rue Morgue's gain.

If its parent company is Fan Block, then yes.

That's the monthly movie subscription, correct? I wasn't impressed with their offerings last I checked a year ago, all stuff I could get at Dollar General for much less. I'll take another look though.

Not sure if it's newsstands or direct sales. But their website shows a physical AND digital copy that can be ordered. Might check my bookstore today though.

EDIT: My bad, they show last year's issue as the latest. Still gone. Sorry to confuse.

I'm 100% behind Rue Morgue. Closest you can get to classic Fangoria right now would be Delirium I suppose.

Re: 100 Movies. 31 Days. The 13th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/

Pumpkin spice is not a craze that needs to last. I love the season, but if Starbucks etc starts to become the symbol of fall then we are in for a hard road. As a kid I don't remember there being as much emphasis on pumpkin flavored 'xyz' crap as there is now. It was cute at first but the pumpkin spice fade doesn't know when to stop.


Spoiler:



Edit: Most of these are fake... but still parody makes the point.

Re: 100 Movies. 31 Days. The 13th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/

Horror Pack is pretty uneven. The exclusives are nice, and aside from the exclusives, I've received quite a few titles I didn't have. However, I have also received movies I do own and some pretty bad ones as well. Overall, I enjoy it and will continue to stick with it.

To this point, I think I've only watched two of the exclusives. Dolly Deadly had a very low budget - and it showed - but it kept me interested. Killer Pinata was the one my friends clamored to watch. It's also very low budget and clearly has a silly premise, but my friends and I thought it was a lot of fun in a goofy bad movie sort of way.

I think I'll give it a try, at least for a little bit. I appreciate if you can send me that coupon code. Thanks!

Indeed. You want see me eating pumpkin anytime soon but I am already drinking pumpkin ales. Additionally my home brew batch this season is Smashing Pumpkin Ale. Hope it's good because I have 45 bottles of it in my future.

Hope it turns out well! The local stores started stocking pumpkin ales a couple of weekends ago, I feel like a kid on Christmas when I see the first six packs go up in late August. And we've had unseasonably cool, gloomy, and rainy weather lately so it really felt like Autumn came early.

Here's the subscription special:

Decent deal I guess. For the regular $50 six issue subscription price, you also get one of their $15 library books free.

Looked at some Fright Crate unboxing videos and it looks like it's all toys and doodads and no magazines or movies.

Yeah, I'm a couple months into a year subscription, and think I'll end up regretting it. Only one title I already owned so far, but nothing looks like anything I'd be happy paying more than $5-10 for.
